Off the hand pull. Big aroma but not the expected floral/citrus smell - there was a noticable malt presence as well. A nice strong bitterness and a moist finish as I would expect from an IPA. Overall enjoyable, but not in the same class as something like Bellís Two Hearted.

Cask. While I enjoyed this beer, it was not my favorite IPA. The aroma was a bit lackluster. The flavors were mostly of piney hops with a touch of citrus. However, I just didnít feel that it had everything it needed to be outstanding. Very creamy and smooth, though. Certainly worth trying.

Bottled. Nice amber colour, good long lasting head and good condition. Dissapointingly low hop aroma but nicely balanced malt and hop flavours in the mouth. Dry and very hop bitter in the finish.

As stated in the name this beer is hopped with fuggles hops and this is evident throughout the beer. the color is a pale golden color with amber undertones. the aroma is slightly sweet and hoppy. the flavor is sweet and lemony and full of hops. the flavor was oddly similar to a lemon iced tea. As expected the finish was very dry and hoppy.

A decent IPA, if a little one dimensional. It smells great, pours great, looks great, but all the build up leaves you hanging when you actulayy get it in your mouth. Thereís really not much to this besides the hops, which are exclusively fuggles (duh). I wouldnít mind a little something extra to lend a bit of depth. Not as bitter as most IPAs Iíve tried.

lighter golden than most IPAs, thin white foamy head...sweet, very clean aroma, flavor is VERY much of apples...i think that is the first time iíve said that with an IPA...but definitely apples it is. ok, so i just read the description AFTER i posted the bit about the apples..at least i know my sense of taste is working just fine! not much of an aftertaste to this IPA. but what is there has a decent bitterness to it. very unusual IPA i would say.

The outstanding aroma of this beer made me expect much more from the taste. I have to agree to the slightly metallic aftertaste. It left a genuinely nasty taste in my mouth for at least an hour.

Very floral nose, malt underneath. Nice white head with some lacing. Sweet first, nice nuttiness and fruit. Medium bodied, hops rush in and rip over palate. Nice bittering finish. Decent, i guess.

Well I was expecting more of a harsh taste, but was surprised to taste a decent beer, but the aftertaste was unbearable.
